Chocolate Chip Hazelnut Cookies

While my little one was fast asleep over the weekend, I quickly baked some cookies right after my butter cake! Wow .. was I in a mood for baking!

This is the first time I ever baked any cookies so I opted for something really simple and quick to mix together and a recipe that would require the most basic ingredients which I already had at home. So I got it from LCOM's ever reliable blog of recipes *smile*.


Can you see how yummilicious my giant cookies look? I got really excited seeing it expand in the oven and could not wait for it to finish baking. I did not have oats, so I dropped in some hazelnuts and chocolate chips instead.

I found the top still too "white" for me, so after 8 mins, I switched to top & bottom baking instead of just the bottom. My oven needed 13 mins. My first tray was baked at 15 mins but the bottom was slightly burnt, so I guess you need to see how your oven works and do not follow any recipe blindly.

Like what LCOM has said, this recipe is indeed a very good basic cookie recipe and there are endless combination of ingredients you can use to make a variety - so give it a try & enjoy!
